Re: Back to Windows??
OK Debian-laptoppers. I know you think our friend Adam is a troll.
But maybe not. Look. He likes Debian:

He has a keen understanding of the organization:

He has a deep grasp of netiquette:

He's a fantastic programmer:

And he's an extremely important guy:

Still, maybe if we chip in we can raise $50.00 and he'll go

Adam: It's ok. You don't have to use Debian on your laptop,
or Debian, or Linux, if you don't want to. I imagine the
time you've spent on the defensive here is worth over the
$50.00 you refered to. For the most part, the ones most
welcome in the community are the ones most willing to
contribute -- your complaints don't count as
"contribution". So, spend the money and get an OS you're
happier with, and chill on comp.os.w95 or wherever it is
like-minded folks hang out.
